Several files are lying on Florentino Perez’s desk, but it should settle very quickly.
Nacho Fernandez has acknowledged that while he’s playing more games for Real Madrid this season than last, the nature of football means things can change quickly.
The 31-year-old stepped up his efforts in the absence of Sergio Ramos, who was unavailable for Madrid long enough after undergoing knee surgery but has since returned, and has formed a solid partnership with Raphael Varane at the back.
“When I was a kid I said I wish I could have played for Real Madrid,” Nacho said on El Transistor. “Now I have played over 200 games and I am very happy to defend this shirt, I hope I can do it for a long time.”
“Will I renew my contract with the club? When summer comes, I will sit down with the coach and the club and we will make the best decision. It would be a dream to end my career at Real Madrid,” said Nacho sliced, very clear about his desires.
“Last year I was more out of the team than in, but football is a pretty fun sport after all.”
Despite Ramos’ return, Zinedine Zidane sought to keep Nacho in the eleven by playing with a three-way defense, as his performances were at such a high level that the Real Madrid boss could do without his captain on the weekend. last end for the trip to Celta Vigo and still come back with three points.
“I feel very confident, settled,” admitted Nacho. “It was a very good year for me personally. On the pitch, I feel different from other seasons; [j’ai] confidence, and playing games in a row helps a lot. I am very happy.”
Real Madrid will face Liverpool in the knockout stages of the Champions League, and the Spaniard is wary of the Reds’ attacking trident, made up of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané. “Liverpool are a very dangerous team offensively, the front three are very good,” said Nacho.
